Caroline Rees PhD
I am a Registered Nutritional Therapist and member of the British Association for Nutrition and Lifestyle Medicine. I hold a master’s level postgraduate diploma in Nutritional Therapy and a PhD in Immunology.
My personal experience in transforming my health through nutrition and lifestyle changes has given me a passion for helping others to do the same. One size doesn’t fit all when it comes to nutrition. Using an understanding of the biochemistry of nutrition and lifestyle factors, I aim to work with you to create a personalised plan that will help you to bring your body back into balance, achieve optimal well-being and long-term health.
Dr. ELISE KEARNEY
I am a qualified nurse with over 30 years of experience working with both adults and children. I qualified as a Reflexologist in 1994 and have experience in treating people of all ages. I feel passionate about the positive outcomes that Reflexology can bring and the power within the human body to heal itself. Reflexology can stimulate the body to start this healing process while the recipient enjoys a relaxing treatment on their feet.
I am a member of both the Royal College of Nursing and the Association of Reflexologists and ensure that I remain up to date with both my Nursing and Reflexology knowledge.
I am qualified in clinical aromatherapy and therapeutic massage. I trained at the Institute of Traditional Herbal Medicine and Aromatherapy in London and am a member of the IFPA.
I also offer Natural Face Lift Massage which combines Indian Face Massage, acupressure, and lymphatic drainage on the face and neck.
James has been working with people holistically for two decades. He has spent many years teaching people to feel more at ease in their own bodies and environment through an array of disciplines, from hedgerow herbalism and edible plants to woodland skills such as animal tracking and traditional skills. His longtime interest in the human ability to self-heal was influenced from an early age by his maternal grandmother, who was also an alternative health practitioner.
James received his diploma in craniosacral therapy from Paul Vick at Resonance Training and is a member of the Craniosacral Therapy Association; he specialises in the biodynamic approach to craniosacral therapy.
I am a C.A.H.S.C. (Council for Anthroposophical Health and Social Care) Registered Therapeutic Arts Practitioner. I hold a B.A. Hons degree in Painting and Sculpture, a certificate in Steiner Education and a Post Graduate training in Anthroposophical Therapeutic Arts (membership City & Guilds Arts Therapy) I have a life-long passion for creativity and education which has invited and lit my way forward in my own struggles and challenges in life, promoting and celebrating self-discovery, meaning and ultimately, self-acceptance.
With a degree in Human Biology I have always been in awe of the body and it’s ability to heal itself given the right conditions. A trip to Australia in 2007 was the beginning of my relationship with Bowen and my initial training was completed in 2010. I have recently included Kinesiology (muscle testing) into my practice. I am fully insured and a member of the Federation of Holistic Therapists.
I am a qualified Reiki Master and have practiced Reiki for over 12 years. I live in awe of the miraculous results I get to see on people and animals. Many people have never experienced complete inner peace until they try Reiki.
It is such a privelege to start them on their journey and watch the healing take place physically and emotionally. I am also the author of ‘Living the Dream Is…’ which has featured in national magazines as a recommended self help book for 2018. Available to buy through Amazon and selected bookstores.
I work both as a massage therapist and teach holistic and Indian Head massage to a professional level at the Fold as part of the Bristol College of Massage and Bodywork.
I qualified with BCMB with a level 4 qualification awarded by the Massage Training Institute and am on the CNHC register.
I am passionate about craniosacral therapy and how it helps bring people in to a more healthy relationship with themselves. Empowering people to reconnect to their own body, mind and spirit is a privilege.
I completed my training in July 2017 and am a member of the CSTA and a member of the UK Reiki Federation.
